March was a monumental month in my life — it marked my move to full-time blogger. (Look at all that alliteration!) I spent the first few weeks of this new existence catching up on long-neglected blog chores, but have now begun to focus on my writing. I’m excited about the weeks and months to come!
Here are some of the posts I especially liked this month:
- March 4th: Uncommon lifestyles and the truth about The 4-Hour Workweek: An interview with Tim Ferriss
- March 5th: How to inoculate your children against advertising (a guest post from Lisa Tiffin)
- March 6th: How to prevent identity theft — deter, detect, defend
- March 17th: Luck is no accident: 10 ways to get more out of work and life
- March 20th: The negative saving rate and the age of easy credit
- March 23rd: The magic of thinking small
- March 25th: What’s not to love about a new car? (a guest post from Katrina Ramser)
- March 31st: Drama in real life: Wrecked rental
Best of the Forums
The Get Rich Slowly discussion forums were especially active this month, spawning a number of great threads:
- What do you think the answer is to rising health care costs?
- Bear Stearns and investing now?
- How much school loan debt do you have?
- Pre-approval and buying a car
- In-laws = Credit fraud!
The forums are a great place to chat with your fellow readers. Have questions about emergency funds? Ask! Want to chat about cheap vacations? This is the place to do it. (Since opening a year ago, the forums have 1400 registered users and more than 16,500 posts.)
